Finally got a card made

My hubby has been traveling A LOT these last two weeks, and it's really cut into my craft time. Kids have priority over stamping, LOL! But I've missed my craft room. He surprised me last night with a call that he was coming home this morning instead of late tomorrow. Whoopee, some free time this afternoon.

I made this one for two different Christmas challenges, Sparkle's Christmas card challenge #11,which was a sketch this week, and the ABC Christmas card challenge. The ABC one, D for Decorations had the twist of using a Christmas decoration and ribbon. Tilda has some tinsel in her hands and a little round ornament is on the corner of her panel. If you remember I was going to try to make one Christmas card a week all year. How do you think I'm doing? Well, not off to a great start! I think I've done three. Like I said before, not going to stress about it!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Planning to watch some of the Olympics tonight. Thanks for stopping by!

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Magnolia
Ink: Memento
Paper: PTI ssw, Old Olive, Bravo Burgundy, MM patterned paper
Embellishments: copics, spica pens, cuttlebug holly embossing folder, corner rounder, MM ornament charm, twine, ribbon

I can not even imagine how you do it with your husband traveling. I have one, and travel season is upon us (New Jersey, Hawaii and Alaska)... and I am a little panicked with ONE! lol When Marque was in Iraq, I got a lot of BUYING done, but not so much on the crafting part.
Love your work girl. And I need to get in on a Christmas Challenge.
Hugs & Blessings,

Lovely Christmas card. You are so very talented. I think you bottle it all up while your dh is OOT and then it all comes flowing out when you finally get to your creative place.
